What are people saying?:
"The images of Troche-Stapp are more brightly colored than a bag of pick'n'mix from Woolies- her images conjure up a heady list of pop culture reference points. Barbie, the classic 50's pin-up, Playboy, the camp glitzy glamour portrayed by French photographers Pierre et Gilles and very possibly, Willy Wonka and the Choclate factory. There all in the mix." -Total Digital Photography --U.K.
